Redox Reactions Given? [ENDORSED]

In pg. 50 of the course reader, there's a question stating, "Will a gold ring dissolve in 1 M of nitric acid (HNOs) to form a 1 M Au^3+ solution?" It goes on to state that nitrate anion can be reduced to nitric oxide: NO3^- + 4H^+ +3e^----> NO +2H2O, on the final exam, are we expected to b...

Cis & Trans

Does anyone know why the letter "E" is denoted for trans? I'm that "Z" is used for cis, because it refers to the higher priority (atomic #) groups, so what does the "E" stand for in regards to trans?

Nu & E

Are there ever any rare chemical reaction instances where nucleophiles interact with nucleophiles and electrophiles interact with electrophiles? Like weak nucleophiles with strong nucleophiles, etc.? Or does this not happen at all, given the definition of nucleophiles and electrophiles.

Differential Rate Law

In the course reader, it states that when it comes to the differential rate law, we study initial reaction rates as a function of only reactant concentration to make the analysis easier. Can this be applied to analyzing initial product rates and product concentrations? Or does it not, because it's t...

Diluting to Create a Battery

During lecture, Dr. Lavelle mentioned that you can make a working battery out of any electrolyte solution so long as you dilute it and connect it. He also mentioned a similar thing with lemon juice; if you dilute it, then you can get an electric current with any low volume. I was wondering, what is ...

Favorable Reactions

On page 39 of the course reader, it says

delta S + favors forward processes
delta H+ endothermic does not favor forward process

Can someone please explain why this is the case?

Clarifying Enthalpy As A State Function

So I understand that enthalpy changes are additive (Hess's Law), so therefore, state functions must be additive. Can someone please explain to me that if this is the case, then why doesn't this make it path dependent?
